The Inward Journey, Moving Within Oneself.

"Yoga is an inward journey. When you are not moving into the future, not moving toward the past, then you start moving within yourself." -  Osho

"A Prince was born in Nepal around 623BC, he was privileged to own three palaces, but was well known for living a modest life. At a young age of 29, he renounced his materialistic life, and desired to live life in his own terms. He mastered Yogic meditation, and practiced moderation in all things including food, he fasted regularly, and walked hundreds of miles in search of answers he was looking for and also spreading the philosophy of enlightenment in life. This man turned inwards to find more peace, and happiness which he otherwise would not have got from mere materialistic possessions or attachments. He is none other than Gautama Buddha."

The inward journey is most rewarding, the benefits reaped, in the form of satisfaction and happiness goes beyond the realms of materialistic successes.

 

The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step, the first step is to understand ourselves, how and what we are, then we seek to understand where we come from and where we would like to go.

 

We are all unique

No two people experiences life in the same way, each of us have developed our own perception of life events and adapted to our own belief system.  

 

"Our Life is dotted with our unique experiences, the way we connect those dots determines our destiny." - PsyYoga.org

 

Why go inwards? 

 (a) Our outward life is just a reflection of what's going on inside of us. 

 

For instance, when we are subjected to strong positive emotions like love, depending on whether it's a past love or a recent one, we set an aura of those feelings around us, and anyone can almost see that inner love reflecting itself from that person, radiating outwards like a rainbow from within that person.

 

 (b) The same is true when we go through strong negative emotions like trauma.

 

Our bodies reflect that too in various ways, depending on whether it was a past trauma or a recent one, an aura is set around us,  that aura somehow announces it to the world that this has happened to us, now or in the past, it shows up somewhere or the other, in some form or the other, however hard we conceal it, it shows up, at times it could manifest as anger towards others or sometimes it manifests in the form of mood swings.

 

In brief, the person who has experienced strong negative emotions like trauma may need counselling or other appropriate help to hop back and live a likeable life. 

 

Everything shows up. 

 

The inner self is automatically reflected outwards, we want it or not.

 

We like it or not.

 

What is "going inwards" according to PsyYoga?  

PsyYoga is not physical yoga.

 

PsyYoga is about dealing with the psychological part of the person.

 

The system believes that the psychology of the person is formed through the unique experiences he or she goes through in this life journey and no two people’s experiences is the same. 

 

Now, for a PsyYogi, who is the practitioner of PsyYoga, going in-wards is not about giving-up everything in life or renunciation.

 

It's not about sacrificing all thing in life a leading a secluded life. 

 

Going in-wards for a PsyYogi means to use those inner experiences that I mentioned in (a) and (b) above in the right way, so as to set an aura around us that reflects the joy within. 

 

Correcting (b) situations and converting that into (a) situations. 

 

What is the mission of PsyYogi to go inwards?

The mission is to build, experience and balance the force of the psyche.

 

What the "The Force of the Psyche" ?  

According the the belief of PsyYoga, there is an additional energy force that drives us all as humans, it’s called "The Force of the Psyche®".  

 

The PsyYoga Force, called as the force of the psyche, is a powerful force, a combined and dominating force of our psyche resulting from all the unique experiences and emotions we have gone through in life. 

 

"The force of the psyche is strong enough to make or break one's life, and needs to be kept in balance."  - PsyYoga.org
